The art work Heat Shimmer Wall (Fata Morgana) takes this same raised position on a wall next to the eye hospital’s auditorium. It consists of a wavy golden mirror, 27 metres long and 2.3–2.6 metres high. Reflecting the surrounding interior, the mirror produces a funhouse mirror image that seems to move or jiggle. We are all familiar with the heat waves that rise off an asphalt road in summer. And the twisted image of reality that this phenomenon creates. Heat Shimmer Wall (Fata Morgana) aims to create a similar optical illusion that allows viewers to actively interact with their own movement in the room.
